This product is great! You can get it basically at any supermarket, I personally got mine at Walmart! The wash makes me face feel so clean and clears up my imperfections so quickly! The smell is awesome too!

I seriously think I like this product because I love the smell of apricot. I am all about the smell. It leaves my skin soft and fresh. A little red, but other than that I'm a fan!

I have used this since high school and LOVE how I feel my dead skin being scrubbed away. I have also noticed it has helped improve the appearance of acne scars and really leaves my skin feeling moisturized!

I loved this facial scrub. I feel like you're getting a good clean. I feel like this will be a good exfoliator for anybody. I have sensitive skin around my nose but i didn't have a problem with irritation.

This is the good stuff. I used this throughout high school and I can say it saved me from not breaking out as much as I should have. I like how it contains apricot beads to exfoliate rough and dead skin.

If you have sensitive skin I suggest to get the green tea brand, but this scrub has helped me so much on my acne! It cleans out my large pores and it smells very pleasing as well.
